Geophysical methods for the investigation of the dynamics of landslide processes are most effective in long‐term observations. Magnetometric and electrometric methods for observing the displacement of man‐made and natural markers are most sensitive and most highly developed at the present time.

A detailed magnetic survey carried out near boreholes where magnets have been emplaced makes it possible to establish the direction and velocities of the displacement of landslide masses at different depths.

Observations of the dislocation of the stable anomalies of the natural electric field allow us to elucidate the character of landslide deformations in the zone of capillary uplift of ground waters.
